Château Fayat 2014 - Magnum
Characterized by aromas of ripe red and black fruits, the Merlot is expressed here in all its fullness.
It is a structured, balanced wine, with fine, precise tannins and a nice freshness. Its frank and direct style expresses a heart of plum and raspberry, fruit paste generously interwoven with hints of liquorice.
Generous, it seduces with an ample and silky finish. This subtle balance between aromatic richness and refinement of the tannins makes it a wine of undeniable charm.
Deep gravel, sandy brown soils; sandy - loamy on clay; old sands on clay sub-layers
